My husband has been on me to get my four month old into her crib,but I really don't know how to go about it. She has slept with me since the day she was born and I refuse to let her cry in her crib alone at this age. Does anyone have any tips?

This is exactly why I.never did that. I make my kids sleep alone from day one, May be put the crib in your room.

That's what we did, because I refused to bedshare. They slept in bassinets in our bedroom at night, and they napped in their crib in their bedroom during the day. Breaking a bedsharing habit sucks.

Take baby steps. Start with the crib or a pack in play in your room and go from there. My son sleeps in his pack in play next to our bed for half the night and then with us the rest of the night.

Us too. No babies in our bed, no habits to break.

OP I'd move her in a pack and play or something next to your bed and go from there. There is a huge middle ground between bed sharing and crying alone in a room.

Thank you. Her crib is in my room she just never has liked it. Even when she naps during the day it's in my arms. She is just really attached to me plus she nurses in her sleep.

Make her crib smell like you and start with napping in there that will help sleeping in it at night. Don't stress if she Downey make it for long stretches. Like start with a small goal like having her sleep for an hour in the crib and work up from there.

You can start with naps. Much easier that way! You could also attach the crib to your bed. That way baby is still near you but has a separate sleeping space.
